Macbeth

Characters: Lady Macbeth and Macbeth

Costume designer : Miriam Spring Davies for Production: Macbeth at Tolethorpe Open Air Theatre (2016)

Macbeth and Lady Macbeth coat designer: Nic Kipar (2016)

Brief: Structured, regal coats that were both echoes of historical garments (16th century) and a fantastical, even Art Nouveau sense.

Realisation: Lady Macbeth boned bodiced coat created with tailoring techniques, and quilted snake applique. Macbeth both with snake applique. Both coats used the Tudor Tailor as a base.
